Strawberries, grapes, bananas, oranges and more were piled high in a ceramic Trick-or-Treat bowl. Youth club members Ben Lutz, CJ Turner, Makayla Blanton, Neely Turner, Nola O’Neal, Jill Lawson, Sam O’Neal and Michael Barbee met with Kevin Spradlin, PeeDeePost.com owner and managing editor, and presented him with a framed certificate.

“Your location Modern Woodmen of America Youth Service Club salutes this hometown newspaper,” reads the certificate, signed by club leader Candace Everett.

Club members have been active in recent months. In August, they donated dog treats and cat treats to the Humane Society of Richmond County during the Bark ‘n’ Bowl bowling event at Striker’s Bowling Center in Rockingham.

As part of the club’s Care and Share project, members met in September at The Foundation of Jesus Christ Deliverance Temple in Ellerbe to help pack the food in bags as well as distribute the food that our chapter helped to purchase. The bags were distributed to the less fortunate in the area.

Modern Woodmen of America opened a downtown Rockingham office on March 1. The nonprofit organization is located at 230 E. Franklin St.
